Christiansted condo description

St. Croix Splendor is a beautifully appointed condo with spectacular views and only steps away to the beach.

Air Conditioning, wireless high speed internet access, and cable television on 50' plasma TV are furnished. You would be centrally located on the north shore of St. Croix, where the best sandy beaches and snorkeling reefs are on the island. It is close to downtown Christiansted and no more than a half hour's drive to nearly anywhere on the island.

There is hiking, kayaking, sailing, snorkeling, and scuba diving for the more active types. Also, tennis courts are on the property and 3 challenging golf courses are a short drive.

From this condo, if you walk down the beach to the front of the H20 Restaurant and go straight out from there, the snorkeling is splendid. Taking a sail to Buck Island National Monument to snorkel is well worth it, also. The reef and sea-life are spectacular! The pool here is one of the largest on the island and is a freshwater pool. The pool area features lounge chairs, a small waterfall, a spa, and and a serve yourself bar and barstools. There is a grill here, if you'd like to make the pool your hang-out for the day or evening....moreless

                              Our St. Croix Splendor Condo is on the largest of the three U.S. Virgin Islands. The island has a natural beauty that is both charming and awe-inspiring. It's wondrous landscapes, hillsides views, oceanfronts, and historic downtown areas have all vacationers would need. Add to all this a casino, golf courses, tennis courts, art galleries, shopping, live theater and a myriad of activities on and in the beautiful blue Caribbean Sea and you can't miss having the time of your life. Families would have plenty to do and would love staying at convenient St. Croix Splendor, your condo on Pelican Cove Beach. With the amenities we offer, you wouldn't need to leave the property once you've bought groceries. Don't forget this is a U.S. territory and English is the first language.

                               

                              Owner info

                              About the owner: Our names are Russ and Kris Bratsch. We purchased this property in 2010. We were both raised on Minnesota farms. Russ has spent his life farming. Kris has been a librarian for eight years. We enjoy being active all year round and certainly owning this condo gives us much to look forward to when the weather turns cold at home. We want others to experience our piece of paradise when we are not able to be here. Christie Powers and her husband Chris Powers manage our property. They handles all communications of potential renters. They also may pick up vacationers at the airport and are a convenient resource, since their office is very close to the condo if renters have any questions or problems.

                              Why the Owner Chose Christiansted:
                              This property is a standout from all the other rental properties that we've seen in coastal areas. It was clear immediately when you drive onto the property that the complex and the grounds are well maintained, secure, and centrally located on the north shore. Pelican Cove Condominiums are right on the beach, of course, but from our particular condo, we have nice views of some of St. Croix's lush hills, when we turn our focus off the sea. The buildings and grounds here are well cared for by the friendly staff. It is such a serene experience to walk around amongst the rustling palm leaves and to hear the waves. Even the parking lot is pretty. The surrounding neighborhood is a nature conservancy, residences and the next two neighbors down the beach feature excellent restaurants. Since the south shore is only 9-10 miles away and Christiansted is only a few minutes drive away, this location makes it perfect to drive east to Point Udall and watch for whales or take a hike to Jack's Bay and snorkel or drive west to Cane Bay or Davis Beach and snorkel or scuba dive. When we feel the need to go shopping in Fredriksted or snorkel under the pier we only have a 30 minute drive or so. By the way, the locals are very polite drivers here. Since we knew that our potential renters may want to just sunbathe by the pool or on the beach and relax and unwind from their hectic schedules, we knew that it was a bonus to get such a great pool and a beach that you can take long walks on. You may get the treat of watching the kite boarders, sometimes literally close enough to feel like you'll be under the sail, too, as we did our first time here and several time since then. Maybe you want to learn the sport yourself when you are on St. Croix. Christie Powers and her husband Chris Powers manage our property. For more on how they can assist you please see the section above this.

                              The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                              When we first walked into this condo we were swept away by the grandness of the space inside created by the cathedral ceilings in the dining and living areas and the spaciousness of the rooms, but when we continued through this space to the 3rd floor balcony and beheld the vision through the blooming flamboyant trees, past the well groomed tropical landscaping, the turquoise sea and the beach that could be ours, we were both in awe. We visit once or twice a year for 1 - 5 weeks and we never tire of being on our balcony. We eat all our meals that we cook at home there. We just can't get enough of the view. We should say that once we emerged from the balcony that first time, we went into the master bedroom and found it to be just as grand as the rest of the place. We (Kris particularly) really like that there are two sinks and mirrors for getting ready for the many activities we do on the island.
